A former Lincoln County High School teacher convicted of molesting a student wants his sentence changed after serving a decade in prison.
Philip Duvall served a 10-year term for paying a 17-year-old girl for nude photos and was suspected of abusing several students at Duval High School.
On Tuesday, he asked a judge to grant him probation instead of the one to five-year term he is currently serving consecutively for molesting a girl. The judge heard very different statements from Duvall and the victim's mother.
The judge did not decide, but told Duvall he would consider it. Duvall is eligible for parole in December.
